LoL Devblog: Improving Champions, Game Modes, and More

To start off, the League of Legends (LoL) development team, Meddler and Brightmoon, emphasize the importance of champion updates. They prioritize the quality and evergreen experience for both new and older champions, taking into account reworks.

Art & Sustainability Updates (ASUs)

In 2023, LoL players can look forward to more Art & Sustainability Updates (ASUs). These updates greatly enhance the “feel” of champions while requiring less work. This means that visual upgrades to older champions will be more frequent and impactful. The upcoming ASUs will feature Lee Sin and Teemo.

Champion Pricing Updates

LoL is making significant changes to the champion pricing system. While some champions’ prices may increase, many will see a reduction in price. Overall, these changes aim to benefit the players and make the game more accessible. For more details, check out the upcoming Champion Bundles.

Cohesiveness in Lore

With the success of titles like Legends Of Runeterra and Arcane, which delve into the League of Legends lore, Riot Games recognizes the importance of narrative consistency across all Runeterra titles. This focus on cohesiveness aligns with the recent announcement of an upcoming Riot MMO. While details on how they will achieve this remain undisclosed, fans can expect a more unified storytelling experience.

Return of Game Modes and New Map

Riot is actively listening to player feedback regarding the Pre-Season Aram changes and Tower Rubble complaints. They are also introducing a new 2v2v2v2 game mode, offering a thrilling deathmatch experience where losing players can queue up again for another chance at victory.

Wild Rift Skins & Updated Splash Arts

Popular skins like Star Guardian Seraphine, Redeemed Xayah and Rakan are already in the works. If these skins receive positive feedback, more will follow. Additionally, Rugged Garen’s splash art will be released in a future patch, but a specific date for Wild Rift skins has yet to be determined.
